Special features

What can this radio controlled boat do?
Zip around on the water at speeds of up to 12.5 mph, and be fearless with your manoeuvres with this boat’s self-righting design stopping you from being stuck belly-up. The deep-V hull design lets you travel at speed and make tight curves. A potent, 180-size, brushed and water-cooled motor gives you all the power to make the most of every opportunity when racing or just having fun. The water-cooling feature uses the water around the boat to prevent the motor overheating, and the inbuilt water sensor prevents you from accelerating out of the water.

What control do I have over the boat?
Keep full control and still have a good time playing at speed. The boat has forward, back, left and right controls as well as forward, backward, left and right trim control. If the boat turns over, simply push the throttle forwards then quickly flick the controls backwards for the boat to flip upright.

Do I need to assemble the boat?
The boat comes RTR (ready to run) and comes with a 2 channel 2.4GHz transmitter. All you have to do is charge up the batteries. When the batteries run low, you can recharge them from a USB port – but make sure you don’t charge the batteries inside the boat. The transmitter runs off four AA batteries (included). Recommended for ages 14+.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and fun This thing is awesome, love it so fast and turns well. Upgraded from slower boat and am truly amazed at the speed

How long can boat run on one charge ? there any warning of low battery ?

Asked by: Alan
The boat would run for 10-20 minutes on one charge depending on the speed you are using the boat at. The hand held controller beeps when the boat battery has about 1 min of power left

How clean clear must water be? Can boat withstand mucky water?

Asked by: Pini
This is down to whoever is using this to decide. For example if there is a body of water that looks like a swap and full of rubbish its probably not a good idea to use the boat there.

Does this have an alarm for if the batteries are running low so you can get it out of the water? 

Asked by: sarah
Yes. The hand held controller beeps when the boat battery has about 1 min of power left - plenty of time to bring the boat back and get it out of the water.
